Your jewelry is super strong and won’t break as easily as other pieces made from softer metals like gold or brass. It also won't react with oxygen or tarnish. It's not indestructible, though:
Okay to wash hands with mild soap.
Refrain from contact with rough surfaces.
Do not bang against surfaces as jewelry can scratch.
Not recommended for shower wear due to too many compounding factors (heat, acidity and ph levels, AHA/BHA gels and soaps, toner shampoos, etc.) which may cause plating to scratch or wear off faster.
To clean, rinse with water and dry with a soft, clean cloth. For quick cleanup or polish, wipe away any residue with a soft, clean cloth. Store in a dry place.

This ring is gorgeous and holds up so well – it completely exceeded my expectations. Despite showering, sweating, and sleeping with my ring on, my skin hasn't turned green and remains irritation-free! The only thing I'd note is that it seems to have sustained a really minor scratch from weightlifting yesterday.
If I could do it over again, I would make sure to take off my ring before using handheld (metal) workout equipment (yeah, stupid mistake on my part), but otherwise, it's perfection. I will definitely be buying more jewelry from Ready Made - please give us more styles!!
I absolutely LOVE my ring! I will be purchasing more!
I’ve had this ring for about a month now and I’m so impressed by how much it is holding up! I have worn it almost every day and it has not changed colors or become altered in any way. Looking forward to purchasing more items from ReadyMade in the future
I love simple pieces and it’s hard to find jewelry that’s not expensive yet withstands day-to-day activities. It’s a first-world problem but trying to remember to remove rings before washing your hands is annoying, especially at work! This brand is exciting, firstly for the materials used (brilliant idea!), secondly for the price point. I’ve bought supposedly high quality, gold-plated pieces elsewhere to see them tarnish after wearing only a handful of times. I love these simple rings (and the chains, too!) and have pretty much bought way too many for my bank account’s good. But I won’t have to buy any more for awhile! Looking forward to seeing what else this company will create. Keep up the great work!
My main complaint about fine jewelry is that it scratches easily, tarnishes, and that it's too expensive. My main complaint about cheap jewelry is that the color wears off and turns my skin green, and is often damaged easily. I was looking for a ring in a gold color that wouldn't wash away if I rinse my hands with water, wouldn't get scratched if I knocked my finger against something, and wouldn't tarnish or oxidize. Unfortunately, that left me with few choices in metals and the price points are hundreds of dollars at least.
This jewelry company claims their jewerly withstands wear and tear, and at $19 for a ring, that can't be beat. I received the basic object ring I ordered several days ago. It looks expensive, like realy gold, and feels sturdy. I've been wearing it daily and I love the look and feel of it! I take it off when I shower or wash my hands with soap, but have rinsed my hands several times and dried them and the ring looks great.
The last $20 ring I bought (from Target) was scratched within days and the gold color was washed off within two weeks. So far, I'm very impress with the quality of this metal. If it stands up to daily use for a few months I'm confident I'll be purchasing more items from this company.
